Inspired by her son Devon, New Yorker and Filipina socialite Jackie Cohen Antonio is intent on bringing a touch of Upper East Side elegance to Makati with the unveiling of her luxury baby boutique, Chibi Momo (translating to ‘mischievous little peach’ in Japanese). Located in the sparkly new Century City Mall, the store offers a concise edit of adorable items from indie-labelled apparel, footwear and books, to one-of-a-kind toys, soft furnishings, and beauty products for babies and young tots.
Most of the goods are sourced abroad, from the chic shores of the US and Europe, but there’s also a neat selection of collaborations and capsule collections from up-and-coming local designers. Swaddle your precious bundle in soft blankets from Aden+Anais and Purebaby organic clothing, or distract tottering toddlers with plush toys from Apple Park and Jellycat, playtime backpacks from Beatrix NY, old-school, natural wooden blocks, and colourful wooden name trains by Maple Landmark. The exclusive cache of soft-on-the-bot organic soaps, massage oils, bath salts and shampoos, as well as the darling Jacadi baby perfumes are also perfect for the all-important, end-of-day baby pamper session. However, if you really want to spoil your little treasure, look no further than Chibi Momo’s covetable baby arm candy – the mini Birkin bag!
